Set in an alternate, shared-world universe, Deuces Down is the one place you'll find such never-before-told tales as John J. Miller's exciting 1969 World Series between the Baltimore Orioles and the Brooklyn Dodgers; Michael Cassutt's first moon landing, when the whole world wasn't watching;
Walter Simon's Great New York City Blackout of 1977; Melinda M. Snodgrass's account of Grace Kelly's mysterious disappearance during the filming of the French Lieutenant's Woman. It's a strange and terrifying world, where anything can happen. A world of Wild Cards.

As an avid Wild Cards reader, I feel this book is a great addition to the entire series. Each story in the anthology gives us more secrets of the Wild Cards Universe than any other novel in the set. You get glimpses into 'minor' characters, some hidden history, and even fond rememberences of deceased characters. A must have for any Wild Cards collection!Was this review helpful?

The 16th in the series of George R.R. Martin's Wild Cards series gives us a look at some of the 'hidden history' of his writer-shared universe of an alternate Earth where super-powers are real, the world is slightly different (Cuba never when Communist) & things can be as gritty as our world. We get a look at the 'Deuces', those affected by the Wild Card virus but have 'minor' powers, plus some insights on side stories that take place in several of the other novels.
